Really fun course. Tough as hell but worth it. Greens were amazing. Love the elevation changes. Can't wait to play again.

Eric (Michigan)
03/17/2016
Beautiful, ancient design running up and down the walls of a valley that runs through the course. Total eye-candy from numerous elevated tees, and sets up a lot of really interesting approaches to greens. Challenging to be sure, but extremely fair. Conditions were excellent, and the staff was extremely friendly.

I had played Mission Inn, El Campion, several years ago so we were going to take a pass.... sure glad we went because it was even better than I remembered and was our favourite by far of the seven course we played. Greens were fabulous and the elevations are amazing!

Worth the drive from Orlando. Lot's of elevation changes which is a nice treat from the standard flat courses in the Orlando area. Good condition

John

Mission Inn was our first time - and everything went smoothly. It is great to play 36 and not have to travel between rounds. I believe we will keep this in our yearly rotation.

Alan (Saint Louis - MO)

Great trip to the country and well worth it. Change in elevation makes it a challenge for all golfers. Great layout and greens. I also recommend the breakfast before you tee off. Great staff and food.

Michael (Owings Mills - MD)

A terrific course. Definitely our favorite on the trip. The elevation changes from tee to green are not what you typically find in FL. Everything was nice here. The food in the clubhouse was really good and the prices were good. We will be back!

Steve (Smithtown - NY)

Nice course. As a northerner like the hills and elevation. Something you don't get much in FL. Love to see a PGA event there if they ever have one.

A true 'championship' caliber course - and a real hidden gem. Been there twice in the last 6 months and will continue to go back as long as I live nearby. The course is really pretty - with the dramatic elevation and wonderfully designed holes. 17 of

If you want to play a course that is different from other Florida courses this is the one! A challenging course requiring you to use all your clubs.

About Mission Inn El Campeon

El Campeon, or "The Champion," was built in 1926, making it one of the south's oldest golf courses. Course architect Charles E. Clarke, of the famous Troon Golf Course in Scotland, took advantage of the natural rolling landscape to create a 7,003-yard monster with the highest elevation change (85 feet) of any course in the state. Consistently ranked in the Top 10 of Florida's 1,500 courses, rated with Zagat's America's Top Golf Courses, El Campeon was recently named Florida Course of the year by the National Golf Course Owners Association. The course's signature 17th hole, dubbed "Devil's Delight" by its admirers and detractors, is a par 5, 556-yard double dogleg with a green guarded by bunkers and a pond.
